This morning we ran a two related story in Diabetes News Hound about having diabetes during a natural disaster.
The first talked about how people with diabetes were some of the hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The article even noted that the event took up to four months off the lifespan of some of those in New Orleans.

The second article talked about what to do to prepare for a natural disaster if you have diabetes. We summarized a blog post that, at times, seemed a little too focused on “gloom and doom” scenarios. You can check out the full post here: Diabetic Tips For Surviving a Natural Disaster
However, it did raise important questions: Have you taken any steps to make sure you can manage your diabetes during a disaster and how long can you live without your diabetes supplies?
